    OMG !

    Then do not even think of using Quatars. They will land on 2m high snow in Heathrow and Gatwick - on time !
    No worries for passengers. !

    We are ready to kill 1000s of Prabhakarans to save innocent people of this country while terror friends and masters of the terrorists suffer as they do now.

    Countries with more freezing conditions do react more promptly in these conditions. but in uk no dody to take decisions or responsibilities. it's total chaos. if a tsunami hits uk, i am dead sure they will not recover for years. it is such a shit country!

    Why should normal travelers be punished just because one person danced the merry jig?

    sakur123 Monday, 20 December 2010 05:44 AM

    Try learn the services of Qatarairways. Taking off in time and landing also in time. No worrie for passengers.

    You need to get out more, get a life, get real, look around SL and see what is going on.

    stewart Monday, 20 December 2010 02:25 AM

    I suppose you are going to blame the British government for that as well.

    Jim Dougal Monday, 20 December 2010 02:17 AM

    What does this have to do with snow fall and delayed and canceled flights?!?! Another dumb comment.

    N Hesara Sunday, 19 December 2010 07:06 PM

    UK is a failed state. all the other european countries laugh on UK. uk will never learn. UK should grow up soon and should learn how to manage disasters from its neighbouring countries.

    Fair N Square Sunday, 19 December 2010 06:30 PM

    Doesn't the article say "due to heavy snowing" ? what's it got to do with Srilankan? some idiots just want to be .talking negative of anything to do with SRI-LANKA

    Amarapala Sunday, 19 December 2010 09:12 AM

    Is it anything new with Sri Lankan ?????

    oyage podi guru Sunday, 19 December 2010 06:22 PM

    This is a stupid comment too.,

    Fair N Square Sunday, 19 December 2010 06:26 PM

    Nature has punished the Britain for harbouring tiger terrorists. LTTE terrorists were allowed to protest with Tiger Flags at the Heathrow Air Port.
    Few months ago, most of the European airports were closed due to volcanic ash. At that time European parliament made some unnecessary comments regarding Sri Lanka. Gods have given due punishment for them whenever they acted against Sri Lanka.
    33 cores of gods save this island.

    wijendra Sunday, 19 December 2010 05:15 PM

    It happens everywhere in the world. If the destination airport is closed, flight does not take off. If flight is already in air it either turned back or land at alternate airport.

    oyage podi guru Sunday, 19 December 2010 04:58 PM

    These cancellations have ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with Sri Lankan Airlines: there are nasty winter storms in the U.K. and in Europe. Many airports are closed due to snow and ice. Why don't you stupid people read other news than just what you read here?

    dp Sunday, 19 December 2010 04:10 PM

    the first three comments........why don't you guys ask for an explanation from Heathrow as why they could not control the snow fall.. suddange kakul levakamin ape mawbimatama garahana thopi, wikramabahuge naadayoda.?

    Faizal Maldives Sunday, 19 December 2010 04:10 PM

    Why Male flights are always delay...

    cracko Sunday, 19 December 2010 03:38 PM

    After the London shame for our leader no wonder they have lots of snow and bad weather. SrI Lankan airline should stop flights to London.

    pissu balla Sunday, 19 December 2010 02:53 PM

    Luckily this didn't happen when our king was in London. Otherwise he would have been in jail in London during this cold winter.

    Jura Sunday, 19 December 2010 09:34 AM
